I will upgrade vlock and merge it with kbd. But i think we are currently
in a pre-release codefreeze, aren't we?

BTW. Shall i rename kbd, because of the extend of changes made to the
package?  I am not sure. In any case i will try to contact the upstream
maintainer to see if he will accept our changes.
